Northern Lights Tour from Reykjavik
Northern Lights, one of natures most spectacular displays
Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are undoubtedly one of the most spectacular natural curiosities. They have never ceased to fascinate the people of the north; consequently stimulating abundant mythology and legends. Moreover, they have always captured the imagination of scientists who study them.
We pick you up from your hotel or accommodation between 8:30 PM and 9:15 PM. Please note that some hotels & guesthouses located in the old city center of Reykjavik are in a bus restricted zone that requires guests to wait at certain bus stops. You can choose the one that is closest to your accommodation and we will collect you from there.
After the pick up, we drive you away from the city lights to where we predict the best sightings according to cloud and solar activity forecasts. Our small tour allows us to get away from the crowds to enjoy the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in quietude.
Named after the Roman goddess of dawn, collide with different atmospheric elements in the area around the North Pole.Viewing these amazing dancing lights across the winter northern skies is an experience that attracts hundreds of visitors to Iceland, as the island is one the areas where the lights can be seen. It is located on the so-called Auroral Oval.
Please keep in mind
The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and displays can never be guaranteed. They highly depend on weather conditions and the solar activity. The sky has to be clear and there has to be enough solar activity. Pictures do not always reflect actual experience/sightings.
What happens if no northern lights are seen on the tour?
We have a very simple rule: If no northern lights are not seen, you are welcome to join our next available evening for free! But you will not get a refund if the tour took place.
What happens in case of cancellation?
If you book a Northern Lights tour but conditions do not allow us to run the tour during your stay, you will receive a full refund.
